Each hosting is unique and so we're amenable to interact at a level that is comfortable for everyone.
Other Things to Note
It gets very quiet and dark here at night. People used to living in a city will notice this the most. On clear nights the stars shine remarkably. Weather and time permitting, we like to end the day with an outdoor fire. Then we gaze at the night sky looking for constellations and shooting stars.
July and August LLBean puts on free concerts at their campus in town. You can look online for the concert schedule "Summer in the Park".
We do quite a bit of sailing in Casco Bay and offer sailing charters for those interested in seeing the incredible view of Maine from the water.
